The perirhinal cortex of the temporal lobe is essential for the familiarity discrimination component of recognition memory. In view of the importance of changes in calcium ion concentration for synaptic plasticity, the present study examined the effects of L-type voltage-dependent calcium channel (VDCC) antagonism on rat perirhinal-based familiarity discrimination processes and plasticity including long-term depression (LTD), long-term potentiation (LTP), and depotentiation. Single doses of… CONTINUE READING
